When I bought my II+ I found that my Uniden 6-to-4 adapter didn't work correctly and had to order a President 6-to-4. At least, that's what I remember...
I picked up two such adapters and the Delta is fine. On the other hand, my 575-M6 isn't too thrilled with the concept, keeps going down a channel when I key up.

Also had to go in and open tweak the AM Mod. Didn't make the difference that I wanted, but it's better than before according to my mod meter.

Anyone on here with a Lincoln 2 v3 or + model have any suggestions for a microphone (currently available models, not CR577, etc.) Can be a hand mic not a desk mic.. Though this rig is home use only for me..

These radios has been out for almost 3 years, surely someone must have switched to an aftermarket microphone..

I have a Astatic 636l sitting here, but before I change the 4 pin to 6 pin I figured I'd ask also about this mic as well. (Yes I have the wiring diagram)..
just curious but why change it?
im told its the best match for the radio. and everybody i talked to using that original mic says it sounds great. as said just curious

I guess it comes down to a matter of opinion and/or preference.

I run a Lincoln + II V3 in my everyday transportation and another one as a base for my home down in Florida. The mod is....ok. But that's about it. Even as a base, it seems to lack a louder or more present modulation.

Well, how's that k-po mic doing?

Tried it out yesterday and it kicks butt. I couldn't get this radio to overmodulate for anything, but I managed to pull it off with this mike. At 60% mike gain at the radio and 100% on the mike, the mod is perfect. Very impressed, especially considering the price these goes for..
sounds like a good match... but why turn down mic gain on radio.. try leaving mic gain on radio wide open.. then turn up power mic till ya get ya desired level ..half way point ??? maybe

Because the way the gain is placed on the mike, I somehow keep wiping it higher or lower. So I crank it to the max and adjust through the radio gain knob, where my fingers rarely ever go.
Why, do you think the mod is better when you limit the mike instead?

That is good to know, I will definitely get a K-PO mic now. Thanks for the report!

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.
  • @ Toll_Free:
    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.
  • @ beakster1715:
    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
